complete with gold cabinets and jeweled drawer pulls, and a unicorn begging for tips.

beer and True Blood
"Beer.Cheese.Bacon: Warm Guinness and ginger stout cake, topped with Fifty Licks vanilla bean ice cream, praline bacon crunch, shaved white cheddar, buckwheat honey drizzle. Booyah!
Cupcake of the week: First up? A homage to my favorite character on True Blood..."The Lafayette." Red velvet cake, topped with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting...and a gold lame thong garnish. [Update 10 am Thursday, Nov. 5: Jensen says that The Lafayette will not be available today. She's still "searching for gold lame thong."]
Spiced, freshly pressed apple cider: infused with vanilla bean and ginger served with cinnamon stix, nutmeg and other goodness. Comes hot with a Tonali's old fashioned glazed doughnut."
